So.. last week on my Bag Sewing Group Facebook board I ran a mini competition for the best case using the free Groovy Glasses Case pattern. (You can get it in my tutorials section here)
The only rules were to make one, or make a new flap shape, ingenious embellishments or a novel use.
I saw hundreds of glasses cases last week, I was blown away, what a great reception for the pattern, everyone loved it. Thank you everyone for getting involved.
So I just wanted to show you a few of the brilliant entries before announcing the winner:
In the end, I just couldn’t decide which to pick, there were so many fabulous creations, so I put it to a vote in the Bag Sewing Group.
And still, they kept coming !
And by a landslide victory, the winner is Kate: A lady who is a most entertaining member of the group who shares her learning journey with us. She has created a glasses case in wool herringbone, with a vinyl saddle shaped flap, a fantastic creation for someone who only started sewing a couple of years ago. Well done Kate !
So, a brilliant week, and thank you so much for joining the fun. We’ll run another comp in a few weeks time.

So…I’m thinking about storage solutions for my new studio (currently being built – jumps up and down with excitement), I thought it would be fun to do a round-up of stitchable storage patterns. I am going to be making a few of these myself – everything matchy-matchy to start with of course.

So…….. we are already heading towards Christmas. Time for us to start thinking about gifts for friend’s and relative’s kids. I want to share with you a few free patterns for soft toys. Most can be made from fat quarters, so it’s easy to pick up beautifully co-ordinating fabrics. Links below.
